Katy Perry Compares Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro’ To A Fart Joke

June 9th, 2010 // 11 Comments

I mean that has to be what she was talking about when she tweeted “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke,” on Tuesday (June 8), the same day Lady Gaga released the rosary swallowing, crucifix flashing during an orgy “Alejandro” video. At least she wasn’t bored.

Katy Perry may have kissed a girl, but she grew up with pastor parents and a background in gospel music. “I was raised in a very pseudo-strict religious household where the only thing on the menu was [gospel standards like] ‘Oh Happy Day,’ ‘His Eye Is on the Sparrow’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ — all eight verses of it,” Perry told MTV. “That led to me being 14 or 15, when I started going to Nashville to record some gospel songs, and to be around amazing country-music vets.” I wonder if that’s where she picked up the Elvis blue suede shoe look she rocked while making her way through LAX yesterday (June 8).

Overall the “Ur So Gay” singer sounds as offended as an entertainer as she is as a Catholic. I can see her point, I mean it’s not exactly original, but it’s commentary that Gaga, who also grew up Catholic, wanted to make coming from her own experience and I don’t think there’s anything cheap about that.

    Does she know what “pseudo” means? Because what she just said was “I was raised in a “fake” strict religious household…” She’s a moron. As is Lady Gaga.

    I wonder if you would see Lady Gaga’s point if she were attacking Judaism or Islam. Me thinks not…you would probably find it outrageous because: all faiths should be tolerated with the exception of Christianity. Lady Gaga is a former Catholic. That does not give her the right to demean the faith with downright offensive symbolism. If she had a problem with the church, then why not engage in a civil dialectic with a Catholic theologian rather than go the cheap offensive route? It is because she would lose hands down…

    If Katy Perry is worried about blasphemy, than why is she wearing a rosary? She should know that’s not what you do with them.

    Oh please, not the persecuted Christian garbage again. Gaga’s images were hardly blasphemous, and they didn’t attack the fundamental beliefs of the Christian church. She attacked the meaningless rituals and oppressive actions of the religion’s followers and she did it in a beautiful and frightening way.

    Blasphemous or not, the video is ugly and hard to watch. Not because it’s offensive, but because it flat out stinks. And Gaga is so nasty. Yikes!

    I agree with Eric. Anyone who is offended by the video can turn it off. But don’t stand there and say “she doesn’t have the right…” As an artist in America, she has the right to do whatever she needs to express herself. Lady Gaga is out there to be making larger statements than what you see on the surface of her videos, but if all you see is vulgarity, and you stop there, it’s your own fault.
    And I like and respect Katy Perry’s artistic and creative strives and opinions as well, but she is hardly one to get offended by something like this.
